What Types of Therapies Are Part of a Holistic Approach?
Our holistic approach allows people to find a range of therapies to choose from for their needs, along with guidance from their therapist. Holistic therapy may include any of the following.
- Meditation: A common holistic therapy, meditation aids in relaxation, calming the mind, and reducing cravings. It provides a way to break free from stress so better decisions can be made.
